What do you do when you have tasted every possible Gin on the market? Usually you enroll into a rehab clinic and share a room with Charlie Sheen or even better;  you produce your own Gin and try to sell it to Mr. Tiger Blood and his pals.

 

In a world where people tag photos of a candy bar from Walmart with hastags such as  #foodporn and #foodgasm it is difficult to find a new expression to explain what was going on in my mouth during the dinner at Ohka.

I love street food. Almost everybody does and after this weekend there is no denying it: Zurich needs urgently a permanent Food Market. How else can you explain a million people standing in line for hours to get a bite of a wagyu beef bun or some truffle popcorn?

Although Punta del Este is widely known for its exuberant lifestyle and the number of restaurants easily matches the number of yachts in the port, it is always a challenge to find a hidden gem in such a sparkling environment.

In Zurich we have become very used to openings, re-openings, pre-openings and all kind of other soft and hard openings. In fact, there is hardly a week without a new bar, club or restaurant trying to claim to be the best thing since sliced bread.

In 2012 the Times restaurant in trendy district 4 of Zurich opened its (garage) doors. With a highly acclaimed young cook, that had received an award as best newcomer in 2001, and a lot of noise in the media the basic requirements were given to be succesful.

On Wednesday 5th of November ’14 Alice Choo opened its doors for the first time at Limmatstrasse 275, Zurich (formerly Indochine Club).
